When you own a business or any type of commercial space, it makes perfect sense to get your concrete floor coated. This process is not just a cost-effective way to improve the look of your flooring, it also improves your space’s functionality. So if you’ve never considered this as an option, it’s about time that you do.
Rapid Results And Longevity
Whether you operate an auto garage, a kitchen in a restaurant, a doggy daycare, a commercial space used for storage, or a machine shop, this step can be a wise business decision. That’s because a floor coating will not only be finished in a short amount of time, but it will also increase the durability and longevity of your concrete floor.
The process will chance the look of your concrete floors in ways you cannot imagine, but that doesn’t mean its benefits end with its look. For example, your coating can help to make your floor slip resistant, a natural advantage considering that any employer wants to reduce their liabilities by minimizing the risk of their employees or customers falling. Additionally, if you get a coating in a hospital or kitchen, the floor is very easy to clean, which is especially important in areas where sanitation is vital.
Of course, you should not lose sight of the fact that your concrete floor can be coated quickly and back up and running, before any other flooring would be ready. For example, certain types of flooring need to be left untouched in an area for several days to even weeks in order to acclimate to the climate of the building. However, with a floor coating, that isn’t necessary. Once you decide on your schedule, you can minimize business downtime.
Perfect For Minnesota Weather
Anyone who lives in Minnesota knows that the winters can be harsh and bittercold while the summers tend to be very hot. Often times, when concrete floors undergo severe fluctuations in weather like Minnesota regularly does, they begin to crack.
In a commercial space, that is less likely to happen because of controlled interior temperatures. However, when you have employees who wear shoes that have road salt residue on them, that salt can actually damage your concrete floors further. Especially if your employees do work that requires them to stand for periods of time, your concrete floors are being exposed to the chemicals in de-icers on an ongoing basis.
A floor coating makes sure that your concrete floor won’t be affected by road salt. Additionally, when employees or guests come in with wet shoes, your non-slip surface will provide them with better grip on the floor and can help reduce the risk of falling. And of course, in the heat of the summer, you don’t have to worry about your coating cracking, chipping, or fading.
Get Exactly What You Want
Don’t think of the coating as a cosmetic procedure. In the process, your concrete floor will also undergo any necessary repairs if needed to prep for the final step. Especially if your current concrete floor has seen better days, you can still get it coated because of this initial step.
Before the coating is applied, the floor will be treated to help make repairs where needed. We also use a shot blaster to help remove stains and contaminants, which in turn allows the best adhesion possible for the floor coating.
When it comes to floor coating, you have several choices to consider. Depending on your business, you might decide on chip systems, metallic systems, or a simple solid color system. Regardless of what you choose, you’ll be be able to find the perfect look for your business. In just one step, you will be able to improve both the look and function of your floor.
